I wish that I had watched all year. I saw most of round 1, and it was great to see it end the way it did. I can't wait for Friday night!

Well at least you are watching now. You got to see one hell of a series played, eh? I just hope we can keep up this level of intensity. I'm glad it was a great series, but I wouldn't have been opposed to more rest.

I'm looking forward to this series. Boston is a great team, so if we can win this one, this team will be special.

if we can keep the few defensive mistakes to a minimum that costs us at certain times in this series, i think boston is in for a rude awakening. GO CANES

Should be another excellent series, both teams match up well against each other at this point. For the Canes to win, Ward has to continue to play excellent, the staal line has to keep up the intensity and pick it up scoring wise, and the defensive mistakes have to be kept to a minimum. If the team can do those three things they will win in 5 or 6 games, if not this one could be over in 5.

GO CANES!!!!!! I'm going with the Canes win in 6 with the Performance of Ward being the main reason we win. I also think that Staal will kill in this series.

Hopefully the regular season isn't a tell. They worked us over in the reg season. But playoffs are always a whole different story.

We were still trying to find our idenity when we played the burins. The last game was in Feb. The month of March is where we found ourselves. I cant wait till game 1 Fri night! This one is going to be special. Go Canes!

This series has the potential to be as, if not more entertaining than the Devils series. As Merch said, we are a way different team than we were in February, Cam has been stellar, Staal is really beginning to become an elite player in this league and guys like Ray Whitney, Chad LaRose, Tuomo Ruutu, Eric Cole, ETC, ETC really know their roles on this team and aside from a few mistakes we have played as a unit and very smart.

The mistakes we made last night were very fixable, if we could just get Eaves to hang on to the damn puck then we really wouldn't have much of a weakness up front. The defense has been close to stellar, with Cam propping them up when they break down. To me Corvo is definitely the leader of our defense, but Tim Gleason has shown me a lot of heart and guts in the last month and I look forward to seeing those two lead the defense against Boston.

Either way it is going to be a great series and if I remember correctly it's redemption as well, last time we played Boston in the playoffs they took us out in 6. This time around I'm calling us in 6 in a hard fought, tough, gritty low scoring series.

The defense has been pretty close to stellar indeed. Occasional lapses and Anton Babchuk occasionally plays like the young'n he is. Definitely lacking the playoff experience. Cam Ward is usually there to clean up though.

We also need someone other than the top line to start producing. Staal, Whitney, and Larose have been amazing but I'd like to see some of the other lines score. Boston is a good team and Tim Thomas is a good goalie, but I feel if we can handle Brodeur, we can handle any goaltender.
